Re: Fentanyl patch tips

I have followed the ritual myself...learned the hard way...by experience and trial and error. My upper arms worked best for me too. Another suggestion would be to not swim nor shower...bathe and wash hair. The water will definitely make the patch come loose from your skin. All four sides need to be sticking to your skin in order for the patch to work properly. Even if one side has started lifting up from your skin, the patch will not provide the proper pain relief.
